Java JRE 1.6.0_35 Certified with Oracle E-Business Suite

Java logoThe latest Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_35 (a.k.a. JRE 6u35-b10) is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12 desktop clients.  

What's new in Java 1.6.0_35?

See the 1.6.0_35 Update Release Notes for details about what has changed in this release.  This release is available for download from the usual Sun channels and through the 'Java Automatic Update' mechanism.

32-bit and 64-bit versions certified

This certification includes both the 32-bit and 64-bit JRE versions.

32-bit JREs are certified on:

  • Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3)
  • Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Service Pack 2 (SP2)
  • Windows 7 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

64-bit JREs are certified only on 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Worried about the 'mismanaged session cookie' issue?

No need to worry -- it's fixed.  To recap: JRE releases 1.6.0_18 through 1.6.0_22 had issues with mismanaging session cookies that affected some users in some circumstances.

The fix for those issues was first included in JRE 1.6.0_23. These fixes will carry forward and continue to be fixed in all future JRE releases.  In other words, if you wish to avoid the mismanaged session cookie issue, you should apply any release after JRE 1.6.0_22.

All JRE 1.6 releases are certified with EBS upon release

Our standard policy is that all E-Business Suite customers can apply all JRE updates to end-user desktops from JRE 1.6.0_03 and later updates on the 1.6 codeline.  We test all new JRE 1.6 releases in parallel with the JRE development process, so all new JRE 1.6 releases are considered certified with the E-Business Suite on the same day that they're released by our Java team. 

You do not need to wait for a certification announcement before applying new JRE 1.6 releases to your EBS users' desktops.

Steve,

Please let us know, how important it is to upgrade to new version Java JRE 1.6.0_35. As this is quite messy for our installation setup. Or can this be done with regular cycle of our security patching in 2-3 months.

Thanks
Deepak

Hello Steven-
Do I need to follow below doc "Deploying Sun JRE (Native Plug-in) for Windows Clients in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 [ID 393931.1]" to implement the java update 35. Are changes/update required/mandatory at application server level(solaris) as well or at client/desktops only.

Thanks,

Hello, Guest,

Yes, if you're using EBS 12, you must follow the instructions in Note 393931.1 to configure JRE use. If you've deployed previous versions (e.g. JRE 1.6.0_34), you'll simply have to stage the latest JRE release for your users.

Regards,
Steven

Hi Peter,

Although public releases of JRE 1.6 will cease after February 2013 later releases will still be available for EBS customers for varying timelines.

Please see 'Implications of Java 6 End of Public Updates for EBS Users' at https://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/entry/what_does_the_java_6 for further information regarding this subject.

Regards,
Tim.

We are on Linux 64 bit, but the java in EBS r12.1.3 (10.1.3 OH) is 32 bit, so we are limited to 2 GB JVM memory, and cannot increase beyond it. The dosc on Oracle metalink are pointing that 64 bit jvm is not supported. Is it still the case? What are the workarounds? Unable to allocate more than 2GB per JVM is really a big constraint. What would you suggets?

Posted by Prasad on March 22, 2013 at 09:38 PM PDT #

hi Prasad -
Yes, the 32bit limitation still exists due to dependencies on various 32-bit components in 12.1. We plan to remove this limitation in a future (12.2) release of EBS.

John

Ryan,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble logging into My Oracle Support. Documents posted to My Oracle Support cannot be shared with anyone who doesn't already have a My Oracle Support account. I'm afraid that nobody is permitted to email MOS Notes to you directly.

If you're having trouble logging in with your credentials, I'd recommend calling Oracle Support to get some help with that.

Steven
